When Barry tells his story of how he came to Christ, it involved a deck of cards. It is no wonder that Barry Warren, who works on our Research and Development campus team, thought of using a deck of cards as a medium to share the gospel. It was a joy to work with Barry a few years ago, helping him bring to life an idea that would help us share the gospel by listening attentively to someone's spiritual paradigm, while helping him better understand himself, in particular his worldview and why he believes the way he does. The title of the project was called "The Perspective Cards". The name stuck and one of our designers/illustrators worked with Barry designing each card to simply share a perspective on what makes up his/her worldview (for more about the Persepctive Cards see perspectivecards.com).
The cards have been well received and used all over the world. It was obvious that the form factor of the cards matched the increased use of the smartphones, and work began on making an app. Yesterday the app was released to the iTunes® app store and you can download it today (free) online. An Android® app is in the works for 2015.
Thank you for your gifts that make it possible to engage in projects like this to help fulfill the Great Commission.
